Hokkaido Ski Trip

Simon recommended a place he's eaten at before in Hirafu. We were given a private room and had an enjoyable night. Tomorrow is unguided ski day and I think I speak for everyone when I'm looking forward to a bit more relaxing day. JW L

Moiwa Compilation

17 Feb 2012 12:40 am

While Moiwa only has one lift, it's on the far side of the Niseko ski area, we had an amazing day, after getting stuck on the shortcut that Yuya took. There weren't many

other people there and we experienced the whole range of weather during the day: started with slightly sunny, to snowing moderately, then heavy snow, and finally very sunny to end the day. Simon and I tried to recreate professional looking gopro footage by handing off the camera mid-run, we still need to work on timing, and Simon at staying upright after the handoff, but think it turned out pretty well. On the last run Aussie James went to a different ridge to film our guide Mitch and myself and got a great view of the pitch we went down. He also snapped some pictures of the two brothers (as we've become to call them).

Basically the one run of Moiwa, we ran multiple laps of the gate off to the right and had a longish traverse back to the quad.

Mount Yotei

Mount Yotei was clear on the drive back from Moiwa so we had to stop to get a group photo. Only three days left, quite sad.

Niseko at Night

16 Feb 2012 02:58 pm

So it snows just a touch here in Niseko. We're off to explore the backbowls, although heard bombing not too long ago so the plan might have changed

Niseko has night skiing, haven't done that since my days in Quebec 20 years ago. Might have to try again if legs up to it.

Sapporo Kokusai

16 Feb 2012 05:36 am

For the first time this trip we managed to ski the whole mountain and find all the fresh powder. Found a few places to jump although Rob's form looks more like a chalk outline at a murder scene than the daffy he was trying to pull. In four days of skiing at

resorts, we've probably skied the equivalent of 10 groomers. Aside from the first run we did in Furano on day one, we've only hit them to get back to the lifts. I think I'm ruined for skiing other locations after all the powder here.

The majority of others enjoying the mountains we've seen have been school groups. Overall not many people out there, been quite nice compared to how crowded Blackcomb is most days.

And I'm glad my ski tip is very rounded instead of pointy!
